A square number is a number that results from taking a number and multiplying it by itself.
The best way to square a number is to use the
This function is used to take a number and raise it to a power. When it comes to squaring a number, the power is always equal to 2.
Here's an example of squaring the number
console.log(Math.pow(5, 2)); // 25
In general, you can use the
Math.pow() function to square any number by setting the exponent to 2.
Another easy way to square a number is to use the exponentiation operator. The exponentiation operator is the
Here's how to use the exponentiation operator to square the number
console.log(5 ** 2); // 25
This operator takes two numbers and returns the first number raised to the power of the second number.
Finally, the last way to square a number is to create a helper function that squares a number that you pass in.
Here's a function that squares a number:
const square = (number) => number ** 2;
Now you can use this helper function:
console.log(square(5)); // 25
**, and a custom helper
